Elucidating Brainstem Contributions to Visceral and Somatic Motor Dysfunction after mTBI

(IRB#: IRB_00135817)

Optimal rehabilitative care following mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) should be based on approaches that target the key underlying mechanism of dysfunction. However, the underpinnings of motor problems after mTBI, including imbalance and improper regulation of heart rate and blood pressure, remain unclear. This project will use state-of-the-art neuroimaging methods and detailed testing of motor function to examine the role of the brainstem in motor problems to better guide care in people with mTBI. Participants will have an MRI brain scan and complete several tests of mobility, cardiovascular, and pupillary function at two visits, separated three months apart.
